Magnificent Sunrise in Bali
Trekking on Mount Batur
The Mount Batur Sunrise Trek is one of our most popular tours for good reason. Explore an active volcano and get up close and personal with one of Bali’s most sacred mountains. Get the spectacular experience views of the sun bursting spreading over the caldera and lake below. The trek takes about one to two hours to reach the peak at 1,717 metres above sea level. Once you arrive at the highest point, it really feels as though you are on top of the world, as you can see the majestic peak of neighbouring Mount Abang hovering above the clouds, the distant cone of Mount Agung on the horizon, and the caldera lake spread out below.
Please contact our Guest Service Assistance for more information regarding Mount Batur Trekking.
Giving New Life for Your Unused Goods
A corporate Social Responsibility program that focuses on giving back to the local community - Amadea cares was launched on 14th February 2012. Funding to this worthy cause is set aside from the resort’s CSR fund and staff members will contribute directly from their respective salaries. Each in-house guest will also be invited to participate by donating just Rp.5.000 during their stay, which is less than the price of a single drink. All funds raised through Amadea Cares will be distributed to a number of carefully selected organizations requiring support.
The first recipient of a donation from Amadea Cares will be Yayasan Senyum Bali also known as the Bali Smile Foundation. This non-profit charity organization was established in 2005 by Mary Northmore, a Bali resident originally from the UK. It is an independent foundation that brings essential healthcare to local people with severe craniofacial disabilities.
